The film is about a high school senior who, after getting the school's biggest bully suspended, realizes he has only two weeks to experience everything he's ever missed out on.
Joey Bragg (Father of the Year), Tyler Alvarez (American Vandal), Jack Griffo (The Thundermans), and Genevieve Hannelius (American Vandal) are set to star in American High's next feature 'Sid Is Dead.' The script is penned by 'Ghost Team' writer Peter Warren and will be directed by Eli Gonda (The Outfield).
The film tells the story of a socially invisible high school senior, who after slipping up and getting the school's biggest bully suspended, realizes he may only have two weeks left to experience everything he's ever missed out on. Bragg will play the role of the title character, Sid, a high school senior who's made it almost all the way through school unscathed through his personal code of flying under the radar.

He'll be joined by Alvarez, playing Jim, Sid’s best friend and comedic relief. Jim is dorky, lanky, not the brightest socially, and desperately trying to fit in with the popular kids while also eyeing all the girls at school. Hannelius will play the role of Tiff, the hottest girl in school, girlfriend of the school bully, and Sid's long-time crush. Griffo will play Eric, the captain of the hockey team who discovers that his true passion may be off the ice through the help of Sid.
Jeremy Garelick, Will Phelps, Will Rack, Water's End, and Gran Via will produce the film, which is set to begin principal photography in mid-October of 2018. This will be the fifth film hailing from the partnership between Garelick’s American High and Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment. LD will fully finance the film.
